fix

To prevent compatibility issues, upgrade DRA, ExA, and FSA components in the following order without interruption:

  1. Primary Administration server.
  2. Secondary Administration servers, if any.
  3. Web component, if IIS is installed and used on a different server than the DRA server.
  4. Upgrade the DRA consoles on any client computers.

In addition, if you have a Multi-Master set, you cannot synchronize secondary Administration servers until you upgrade all secondary servers to the same version as the primary Administration server.
